A unique alphabet book
This is an alphabet book unlike any other. Sure, it starts with the usual. A is for Apple, B is for Ball, C is for Cat. However, things get interesting as soon as you turn the page to D and it reads, 'D is for Moose.' It seems as though Moose is a little confused and anxious as he begins to appear on various pages asking, "Is it my turn yet?" Zebra, who is directing his friends to appear on the correct pages really causes problems when he decides to go with mouse for the letter M. Well, let's just say Moose doesn't take it lightly. Will Zebra regain control and save the ABCs?
Young readers will enjoy the humor of this book and how the illustrations interact with the text. Not only will they learn their alphabet, but they'll also get a good laugh.
